Data inSight is a research project that aims at building a crowd sourced database of access requests.
So far, two scientific papers have been presented about this project. In December 2017 a paper called "Collectively Exercising the Right of Access: Individual Effort, Societal Effect" was presented at Giganet Conference. It showed, on the basis of over 100 access requests sent by a group of participants, that organizations reply to access request in a very diverse way. It is argued that collective and societal use of access request is necessary in order to unlock the full potential of the right of access.
In a paper presented at HotPets the idea for a crowd-sourced research into privacy practices based on access requests is initially presented.
